The new concept RE will ride on a split cradle frame. It features girder type forks. Also, the alloy wheels come fitted with Maxxis tires. The Bobber KX concept will run on one of the most powerful engines from the company, with a displacement of 838cc. It is an oil cooled V Twin engine. Power transmission is through a chain drive. The engine is paired with a 6 speed transmission. The company has not revealed any power or torque figures yet, but it is expected to produce around 90ps.
It also features twin disc brakes up front and a single disc on the rear. ABS is offered as standard. It features an Electronic Fuel Injector (EFI) and also a Ride By Wire throttle. The suspension setup consists of girder type front forks and a mono shock at the rear.
